When it comes to Bernie Ecclestone and his family the numbers are always large, rather astronomical. The latest coming from the Ecclestone household is that the Formula 1 boss is paying Black Eyed Peas $1.5 million to perform at his daughter’s wedding. The chart-topping US group, featuring Stacy ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, will be flown out to perform as part of the three-day celebrations being held at the 13th century Odescalchi Castle, near Rome. His daughter Petra was in the news recently when she decided to buy Candy Spelling’s former home in LA County for $85 million.
Sometime back Rihanna had performed at Mr. Ecclestone’s daughter’s engagement party. The wedding is scheduled to take place next month. His daughter Petra has been preparing for the wedding and her life after that. In fact the purchase of the sprawling mansion is also a part of that plan, though she had to borrow over $80 million from her mother for it. Her mother Slavica, who divorced Formula 1 mogul Bernie in 2009, is alleged to have got the largest divorce settlement ever. That’s how she was able to spare $85 million for her daughter.
Petra, the 22 year old daughter of the Formula 1 boss, is a fashion designer and is known to be one of the most spoiled girls in Britain. She is marrying entrepreneur James Stunt in August and is believed to be splitting her time between her homes in London and Los Angeles. Over 300 guests will be flown to the venue of the marriage in Italy. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were married at the same venue. The celebrations are expected to be over the top and grander than anything you have seen before.
